Robots and Recycling in Battle O’ Baltimore

More than 700 participants, volunteers, and spectators gathered in the Rollins-Luetkemeyer Athletic Center on Saturday, September 26 for the Ninth Annual Battle O’ Baltimore robotics tournament. After an opening ceremony featuring the Middle School Drum Corps, and the Gentleman Songsters and Women of Note, Headmaster Charlie Britton welcomed students and coaches from across the region. Then, 28 teams maneuvered their custom-built robots in a game called Recycle Rush created by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.) The game requires the robots to stack up to six rectangular storage totes, place a green recycling can on top of the stack, and then put “trash” in the form of pool noodles into the can. See all the action in this report on WBAL TV.
